Top Dawg must be made up of some really smart cats. Even though Kendrick was maybe supposed to be on Rocko’s “U.O.E.N.O,” things must have changed. TDE shotcallers probably saw the same thing we did, which was a runaway hit turning into a one-car crash into the median and figured bowing out would be a better bet. Instead of letting K.Dot’s verse go unheard, the whole Black Hippy squad joined in and thus we get to hear what we wanted, without suffering through Rocko.
Watch the good kid, M.A.A.D. City tour promo video and skip through to 1:18 to hear the track. If and when the tour comes to your town, make sure you go because there’s no way you can say you ain’t e’en know it, as many times as you’re bound to replay this shit.
Update: TDE unshackles the audio.
